Yeah, there's a point to be made that we needed cap space for an injury call-up. However (and I've said this before), I would've rather sent Giroux down for two games if Kimmo has the flu and keep Upshall for a playoff run. What's the big deal in that? Are we at the point where Giroux is so essential to our success that we can't send him down for a few days?

We're 7-7 since the trade deadline and have been fortunate to win some of those games. I don't think we've looked like the same team as before the deadline.
Correlation does not equal causation. If losing their 9th best forward really made that much of a difference to this team they have much bigger problems than the Upshall trade.
